    Your typeface is Arial. Both Arial and Times New Roman contain the
    same Arabic glyphs and many Arabic letters have only two glyphs
    in these typefaces. This design is similar to the practice with
    conventional Arabic typewriters. You might call it "primitive"
    or "ingenious" -- depending on your point of view.

    Use Tahoma if you want to see different glyphs.

    If you enable "International Support" in Windows 2000/XP/2003,
    you will get even more Arabic typefaces such as Simplified Arabic
    and Traditional Arabic.

    You must choose such a typeface for "Arabic", not "Latin", in your
    browser's preferences.
